realport software will not connect to portserver ts1,2, and 4, gives a SSL3_CHECK_CERT_AND_ALGORITHM

Since our last upgrade of Linux,our ts1,2, and 4 will not connect to the realport software. It seems to be an openssh problem. Our portserver ts 8 seems to work fine. But all the smaller devices will not connect. They are logging the SSL3_CHECK_CERT_AND_ALGORITHM error. We have updated to the latest firmware on the web site but it did not help. If we downgrade the openssh then they connect again. This causes a significant security problem. How can we get this fixed in the firmware?

What version of openssl is being used?

What driver version?

What Linux distribution/kernel?

Did the driver build successfully against the openssl version or did it use the built in version?

I have been working this with the support group. They have been able to replicate the problem. As it turns out the problem is in the portserver ts1,2,4 firmware. The key installed in the firmware is an AES-128 or a 128 bit key. The newer versions of openssl require a longer key. At least 1024 is recommended.

in response to your questions.
